Seems like I read on here there is an alternative but I can't recall what was used. Any ideas?

I bought some Boeshield and I was suprised to discover it seems to be just like TriFlow or a mix of triflow and wd40. I tipped a frame up so the DT was just above level and sprayed some in. about 30 min later when I sat it on the BB shell and fork the t-9 ran out of it.
Fogging oil (comes in an aerosol can) from your local auto parts store is a cheap alternative.

Isnt that stuff supposed to be sprayed inside the frame to stop internal rust? Seems like coating the inside with POR15 would be more effective. That or a 2K sealer.

Someone here did a thorough test of the various treatments but the final results were never reported. I'd suspect that Framesaver and LPS-3 and Boeshield have a lot in common. My can of the latter turned a little too waxy and now refuses to spray out. I couldn't find it at the Home Depot and settled for a product from the PB Blaster outfit that seems very similar. Have only used it on one frame and that without any testing.
